Tomato Pie

Tomatoes is one veggie we love in our home. Bright red savory fleshed vegetable that is so versatile and can be cooked in so many ways. Give this tomato pie a try for a weeknight treat, summer cookout or potluck event. 

What is A Tomato Pie

Tomato Pie is a savory pie that is filled with onions, tomatoes, cheeses, rich herbs and baked in the oven. You slice it up like a traditional pie and serve. 

You can serve this as a light lunch recipe, appetizer, or even a side dish. There are many recipes for this pie, but this tomato pie recipe is hands down my favorite. 

How to make Tomato Pie

  • Prebake the pie crust until lightly browned
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Slice (or chop) tomatoes. Place in a bowl with a few layers of paper towels, sprinkle with salt, and let sit for 10 minutes. Pat them dry to draw out any excess water.
  • Start layering your pie by placing chopped onion on the bottom of the pie crust.

  • Line tomatoes in the bottom of your pie crust. If you sliced them, you can lay them up the sides of your pie crust a bit.
  • Sprinkles chopped basil on top of the tomatoes.

How Long Does Tomato Pie Last 

You will want to eat your tomato pie within 2 days of making it. This pie is best when served fresh, but it will store in the fridge for a few days. 

You can eat it chilled from the fridge or warm it up in the oven or even the microwave. 

Can You Freeze Tomato Pie

Tomato pie can be frozen and reheated in the oven, but you will find that the crust can become soggy. The tomatoes will release a lot more liquid if frozen and thawed. So I recommend not freezing your pie.

But if you want to give it a try, it can be done, just know it will alter the texture and flavor a bit.

Do You Need To Allow The Pie To Rest Before Serving

Yes, it is good to allow the pie to rest. It will help to thicken up the filling and then when you slice the pie will hold together. 

If you slice it right away, then you will find that it has more liquid. 

Best Way to Reheat Your Tomato Pie

Feel free to do a quick reheat of the microwave or even the oven. Or slice it and eat it chilled. We love it all the ways, but fresh outta the oven temperature is our favorite.

Homemade Crust VS Store Bought 

You will find that store bought vs homemade crust is fully up to you. If you prefer to whip up a homemade crust go right ahead. Otherwise buy frozen and use it.

I have no problem buying frozen and using that, or even the chilled dough you roll and shape. They all taste great, so if you want more of a homemade go for it, otherwise store bought tastes just as good!
